Information about the Employee Assistance Certification Commission (EACC)
The EACC is the governing body for the Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP®) certification. Made up of 9 Commissioners, the EACC reviews appeals, complaints against certification holders, and periodically works on development of certification programs.
An appeal is available to those who have held or currently hold the CEAP®, as well as candidates. Appeal forms are provided upon request from EAPA staff and include instructions on how to submit the form. After the appeal has been reviewed by the EACC, the appellant will be notified of the decision in writing, within 1-2 weeks. The decision, resulting from review of the appeal, is deemed final.
A complaint against a CEAP® holder may be submitted by: (i) any person or entity served by an employee assistance program (or their designated representatives); (ii) any international, national, regional or state professional association of which the EACC credential holder is a member; (iii) any licensing or credentialing authority; (iv) the Board, EACC or Committee. For more detailed information on the Complaints process, please review the Rules and Procedures Regarding the EACC Code of Conduct.
Every spring, the EACC will open its nominations period to recruit new Commissioners to serve a three-year term. All members of the association will be notified of the nominations period and are encouraged to apply. An application will be available on the website when the nominations period is open.
